No leads in 14 months after armed holdup of SU 12, chief says

SELINSGROVE — Fourteen months have passed since a home invasion and robbery of 12 Susquehanna University students in a downtown apartment and still no arrests.

Borough police Chief Tom Garlock said Friday there is a lack of leads in the April 2013 break-in at an apartment in the 100 block of South Market Street by two armed and masked men.

The victims are no longer living in town. Garlock would not comment on whether they were cooperating with the investigation, which is still open.

The suspects, described as black men between the ages of 18 to 28, entered the apartment wearing camouflaged clothing and carrying weapons.

One man had a shotgun and the other wielded a semi-automatic handgun.

The men ordered the 12 students to get on the floor and hand over their wallets and cell phones. One woman was forcibly robbed and struck on the head with the butt of the shotgun.

In the wake of the robbery, the university offered counseling and beefed up security on campus.
